I am new to Femap and have been trying to learn this tool for my work purpose. I have 2 questions,
1. Recently I created few RBE2 and RBE3 elements in my model and now after creation, I want cross check if all the elements are as per my creation or not. I want to see the naming or the type displayed along side my elements. (Just like turning on the DOF for rigids). How do I do this?
2. How to check the mesh intersection if I just have the meshed model?
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
an easy way to identify RBE2 and RBE3 is to use an existing API under custom tools / elements update/ Set separate colors for RBE2 (Red) and RBE3 (Blue).
You're welcome. For the second question, it is not clear. Do you means how to merge coincident nodes? avoid free edges? connect plates? Then you can go to tools / check / coincident nodes; Define the tolerance and preview coincident nodes. If that suits you, click ok.
